Five Thoughts for Friday

Five Thoughts for Friday

Methot, Murray, and Melnyk all speak to the media this week, leaving me with lots to think about. 1.  Oh boy, so this whole "negotiating through the media thing" has kind of become a mess, eh? The Senators have tried this tactic a couple times this summer, going back to when Murray leaked that Jason Spezza had asked for a trade. More recently, he said that Marc Methot's camp had asked for 5 years at $5.5-million. But when the tables get turned, Assistant GM Pierre Dorion gets feisty. Methot's agent, Larry Kelly, had a few choice words to say to the Ottawa Sun about how the two sides were...

We're beginning to get a clear picture of what the Ottawa Senators will look like at the start of the 2014-15 season; whether it'll be the same group by the end of the year is a whole other question. One of the players whose long term fate has yet to be decided is: Marc Methot The biggest news in Sensland this past week was the leak of Marc Methot's contractual...

Looking Back: Nick Foligno for Marc Methot

A look back at the Foligno-Methot trade from the summer of 2012. Would you still make the same deal if you were GM of the Senators? Two summers ago, the Senators aquired defenseman Marc Methot from the Columbus Blue Jackets for forward Nick Foligno. The July 1, 2012 move made sense for the Senators, who would lose defenders Matt Carkner and Filip Kuba to free agency that summer, and for the Blue Jackets, who no longer seemed to have a fit for Methot after an injury-plagued season. At the time, Foligno was coming off his best season as a Senator, with 15 goals (his second-best career total...

Is Marc Methot's Current Contract a Bargain?

At $3.75M this season, is Marc Methot a bargain for the Senators? Have your say! News broke earlier this month that contract negotiations between defenseman Marc Methot and the Senators organization had stalled. Graeme Nichols of the 6th Sens said this to say at the time: "Posturing and stalled talks are all part of the process and it is only the beginning of August. We are still approximately two months away from the start of the NHL's regular season, so there is still a ton of time for the organization to come to terms with any of their 2015 UFAs." Nichols is certainly right that...
